LYRICS – IN STEREO ALBUM

IN STEREO

she said, you don’t know me… honey
she ain’t never been lonely… never without a man
so she said, if you don’t want me, there’s a line up ahead
now, take it as a warning, you’ll never find a better thing

and I hear her cry, and I hear her moan, I hear her cry

in stereo

oh this cinematic romance… is so real
baby give me half a chance…. let me show you how I feel
cause this ain’t no movie, and I ain’t playing around
but let me tell you baby,  I got all the charms, of a leading man

and I hear her cry, and I hear her moan, I hear her cry

in stereo

LOVE GONE ASTRAY

i’m on a lonesome highway
i’m on the road that takes me from you
i’ll be there before you know it girl

i’m on a run cross the state line
a few more miles will see me through
and i never felt better girl
never felt better girl, i never felt better girl

i’m on a lonesome highway
heading nowhere fast with nothing to lose
oh and i bet that girl doesn’t even know that her man is missing
and just where the hell he’s got to

there before you know it girl

If you’re wondering why well I got my reasons
your wondering eyes and hot n’ cold feelings
no more lies, no more deceiving
since our love has gone astray

TAKING ITS TOLL

i got a woman, prettiest thing round
but now i keep hearin’ she’s been sneakin’ around
she sets off on the prowl…yeah
every damn time i’m outta town

i love that woman with heart n’ soul
but it’s taking its toll….. oh no!

lord, i don’t know what I’m gonna do
cause every time i ask, she swears them lies ain’t true
she sets off on the prowl…. yeah
cause when I call late at night the phone rings out
i love that girl, but heaven knows
oh it’s taking its toll….. oh no!

well i gotta let her go
cause i saw her down town, with her high heels on
and at night when she’s all alone
that midnight hour, is gonna take its toll….. oh no!

ALL NIGHT LONG

i was so lonesome
till you came along
with the curtains drawn
with a love so strong, this could take all night

all night long

ah shake for me girl
with the lamp down low
oh baby twist n’ turn
if we take it slow, we could make it last

all night long

till the break of dawn
on the hard wooden floor
and your warm embrace
chills my bones, chills my bones baby

all night long

BURN BABY BURN

she comes and lights my flame
when i was restless in the dark
and lies beside my frame
to feel a little warmth

we throw our hearts to the fire
oh and how we did burn
there’ll be nothing left but cinder
when the morning comes

oh baby how i will surrender
and how she sets me alight
i’m shaking like an ember
i’ll be your sacrifice

now in our darkest hour
in the fading of the light
she leaves me here in ashes
never to return

burn baby burn

SOPHIA’S WALTZ

She can see the sun bring on the dawn
still no one’s asked Sophia to waltz
with her long winding hair
such a wonderful stare
from the corner of the hall

lovers drift across the floor
while Sophia dreams to be adored
with her lips cherry red
in a torn wedding dress
in the corner of the hall

if she had someone she’d hold them so close
no one asked to walk her home
now the last song’s been played
and the car tail lights fade
tears run from the hall

BACK ROADS

riding the back roads, 12 hounds on my trail
closing in slowly, driving me straight to hell
i got it wound open, further then a clock strikes twelve
the devil is waiting, with open arms

maybe i could change my ways, turn this all around
but a rackin’ and a ruin’, the only way I know how
hell‘s around the corner and the walls are closing in
the devil is waiting, with open arms

SHOT THRU

baby’s wearing her halo
sweet lit-tle an-gel
spendin’ all my money just to hold her down
and keep her from walking out

she’s gone and got a new hair doo
your love is like I’m in jail
five hard years trying to hold her down
that ain’t what love about

so I’m on the run, like I just killed a man
makin’ a move, I got nothing to loose
I’m clearin’ out, leave all this shit behind
I’m on the run, shot from a loaded gun

I’ve been riding the back roads
a fistful of throttle
this love gonna burn me out
so baby I’m breakin’ out

i think we’ve come to the crossroads
sweet lit-tle an-gel
oh baby can’t you see me cryin’
and that ain’t what love about

so I’m on the run, like I just killed a man
makin’ a move, I got nothing to loose
I’m clearin’ out, leave all this shit behind
I’m on the run, shot from a loaded gun

NO HARM

i’ve been ramblin’ for the longest time
and never seen the stars shine so bright
oh and then almost like a tear drop falling
i saw her in the corner of my eye

now she’s all i want, all i need
and everything, for a man to be pleased
now you’ve been hurt before little baby i know
lay down your guns and we can take it slow

because you’re all I want and all I need
and everything to satisfy me

I won’t do you no harm, no harm
I won’t do you no harm, no harm
